Hi everyone, I’ve got a personal dilema to solve this evening! We’ve just been invited to a formal black tie do in a fortnight. I have a perfectly decent black satin ball dress which is a (roomy) size 12 (UK). Alas I am now a size 16 (UK) but thankfully I have a narrow waist. The dress is strapless so all I need to do is insert a triangle in the back, with a hidden zip in the centre and it’ll fit perfectly. I was wondering about how to make it look like its meant to be there? There was a trend on wedding dresses to have sashes / borders of colour at one point. Also, what about tails? Im up for any suggestions!! The dress is black satin so I think I’d better go for a contrast (finding a black to match I guess would be impossible) so I was wondering about a cream? In a band around the top and down the back? Then all I need is a ‘me’ to pin it for me!!!!

I can’t help you. Sorry but if someone got some informations, I’d like too !!
I think I’ve figured it out. The slit edges actually mean the zip edges. Go figure.
